He also holds a doctoral degree from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and is a registered Expert of Computer Hardware and Software Sciences at the Ministry of Industry in Hungary.
Gyorgy Matrai worked for several years in production control software development and optimization and teaching systems. During that time, privatization initiatives were underway in Hungary, leading him to a new area of research. In 1989, the General Banking and Trust Company, Ltd., in Basel, Switzerland invited Mr. Matrai to conduct detailed studies in the areas of international banking law, securities and small venture investments. This experience led to his expertise in securing governmental debts and to the establishment of Limage Holding.
Utilizing this knowledge, Gyorgy Matrai was successful in settling an outstanding trade balance of $78 million between Hungary and China. This major victory for his private firm at the time, Autotrade Company, was one of many career-long achievements.
